The Sam and Fuzzy Two-Volume Omnibus Kickstarter
For years, the number one question readers ask me has always been the same: "When will you make books collecting the early years of Sam and Fuzzy?"
Well, guys, I think we should do it right now!
The Sam and Fuzzy Omnibus collects the entire first seven years of the comic. The taxi-driving era. The bookstore years. The Noosehead saga. Everything that isn't in my existing books, from strip #1 to the start of Fix Your Problem.
I didn't want to publish this as a series of six or seven regular-sized books. It would have taken years. It would have been way more expensive for everyone to buy and have shipped. And... doing it that way is for babies. Right?
So instead, I designed the hugest, prettiest, most fan-servicey product I could -- a massive two-volume Omnibus, which we're selling in a standard edition, a limited hardcover edition, and a personalized artist edition. (All of which have spines that will align and harmonize perfectly with your existing Sam and Fuzzy books, by the way.)
I priced these books as inexpensively as humanly possible, so that our international friends who have to pay for crazy international shipping can save still save some money. And I'm also selling a bunch of other cool stuff to fund the project... prints, buttons, art commissions, and for the first time ever, the original Sam and Fuzzy comic art itself! You can even add-on my existing three books, or some of my shirts. (Including two brand new ones... ShipWrex and Pokehog... although if you don't want to wait 'til December for those shirts specificially, they will be up on Topatoco soon, too.)
I'm taking this really seriously because, well... it's my dream project. It's the definitive collection of the work that allowed me to become a professional cartoonist, and to connect with all of you. But I can't make it without your help. So, I hope I have made helping an extremely enticing and rewarding proposition! Go see the kickstarter page, watch me embarass myself on video, and check out all the cool stuff. And if you decide to chip in: thank you. I mean it.
Let's do this thing!
